Everyone’s heard of Jimi Hendrix, and this era-defining American singer, songwriter, and guitar player wrote some of the most popular songs of the 70’s, with Purple Haze, Voodoo Child, and Foxy Lady being just three of the hits he wrote.
Net Entertainment decided to create a Video Slot all around the iconic figure, and “Jimi Hendrix”, as it’s called, is one of the finest additions to the Net Entertainment Video Slot range, thanks to it’s exciting gameplay, great range of features and bonuses, and inspiring design, audio, and animation work that’s gone into the game.
Featuring a hippie-like design, Jimi Hendrix: The Video Slot uses a combination of playing card symbols, and game specific symbols, with the high-paying symbols including a White Guitar, a Peace Logo, a Heart, a Vinyl Disc, a vibrant Flower, an Eye, and a Red Guitar.
Jimi Hendrix himself is the wild symbol, and there’s also a scatter symbol, which is a cartoon-like image of the man himself playing the guitar.
Red Guitar Re-Spin
If you land four or more of the Red Guitar symbols anywhere in view, you’ll be awarded a free re-spin, with the Red Guitar’s locked in place.
If, on the next spin, you manage to land more Red Guitars, they too lock in place, and you’re awarded another re-spin, and this continues until you don’t land anymore; after this, the wins are paid, and if you’ve hit 5-of-a-kind, you’re in for a massive base-game payout.
Purple Haze Feature
Triggered during the base-game, you’ll need to land the rare Purple Haze symbol on reel one to active this bonus.
Do so, and for that spin, all the traditional playing card symbols, including 10, J (Jack), Q (Queen), K (King), and A (Ace) will become wild, substituting for all the high-paying symbols.
Pick ‘N Click
This is the main bonus-round, and the one you’ll want to aim to hit! To trigger it, you’ll need to land three of the scatter symbols on the last three reels (reels 3, 4, and 5); when you do, you’ll then be taken to a “Pick Me” style of game, where you’ll pick from a variety of rocks, to uncover different free-spins options. There’s four different types you can win, and you simply keep picking until you’ve matched three of the same colour – after that, the free-spins begin. The different options you can be awarded are shown below:
- Coin Win – Yes, standard Net Entertainment – you can of course win a coin win if you manage to (unluckily) match three of the gold coins.
- Crosstown Traffic Spins – If you manage to get the Crosstown Traffic spins, you’ll be awarded with six free-spins, and on each spin, you’ll have either one, or two reels completely wild.
- Purple Haze Free Spins – If you pick the Purple Haze spins, you’ll be awarded a random number of spins, between six and twelve. During the free-spins, all the traditional playing card symbols, including 10, J (Jack), Q (Queen), K (King), and A (Ace) act as wilds, giving you huge chances to win. (This is generally considered the best pick).
- Little Wing Free Spins – The Little Wing free-spins again awards a random number of spins, between six and twelve, and each spin will see three, four, or five wilds added to the reels.
